So the past couple of weeks I have been making myself coffee every morning at home in my Chanukah drip coffeemaker, which is totally great!  Cheaper, and induces me to carve out time for at-home breakfast to go with it.  Special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] scorchus, who taught me to use the darn thing remotely effectively.

I'm on my second-ever bag of coffee (Intelligensia, yum!), and trying to figure out the ins and outs of storing coffee most effectively for maximum flavor and minimum complicated. 

With my first bag, I had Diesel grind it all for me, and stored it in the freezer.  It was great for a while, but the last couple of days I could definitely tell the flavor was not as great.

This new bag, I have whole-bean, and this morning, I ground enough for two or three days.  I put the whole beans remainders in the freezer, and the ground coffee in an airtight tupperware in the fridge.  And then I started to wonder: "Am I ruining my coffee right now??"

So:

1) Where should I store my unopened whole beans?
2) Where should I store my opened beans?
3) Where should I store a couple/few days of ground coffee?
4) Any other exciting coffee storage advice?

Thanks, Dr. LJ!
